The simple things are also the most extraordinary things, and only the wise can see them.

From as young as I can remember I saw the world differently than most. I’ve always enjoyed problem solving and approaching situations from outside angles. People are the source of my inspiration, I love to see how people live, work and coexist with each other.

Photography is the medium that allows me to strengthen my connection with humanity, as well as share stories I feel need to be more prominent. The power of photography to influence and shape public opinion is something I find extremely fascinating, especially in a world where we encounter hundreds of images on daily basis.

          

 

I have a B.A. in Psychology from SUNY Oswego. I also studied abroad at the University of Osnabrück in Germany for a year, which allowed me to experience a different culture, land and language. I was forced to question my own values and morals, creating a new-found respect for diversity in our world.

With my photography, I intend to bring stories of people and places to viewers that wouldn’t see them otherwise. One of the greatest opportunities I see with the medium is to break down and challenge stereotypes that limit the progress of our society.
